John Sheridan believes Chesterfield FC should have brought all three points home from Preston North End.
The 0-0 draw at Deepdale followed on from the 1-0 victory over Tranmere on Saturday, but the Spireites back to second from bottom in League One because of results elsewhere.
The Blues boss said: “I think we deserved to win the game. We looked solid and never looked like conceding, which is good.
“We’re getting into good habits and are becoming harder to play against and we’re working hard as a team.’’
The best chance of the game came right at the death when Chesterfield captain Neal Trotman - who cost Preston £500,000 four years ago - clattered the bar with a header.
Sheridan said: “It’s just a big shame that we didn’t get that break at the end of the game.
“If that’s against us, it goes in but in our position you just don’t get that bit of luck.
“The lads worked their socks off and to get something from the game is good as they’ve got some good players. Tommy’s not had a save to make all night.’’
Chesterfield are on the road again on Saturday when they travel to meet play-off chasing Stevenage.
